Creamy Italian Chicken

My hubby enjoys simple foods.  In fact, some of the foods that I just make up (mainly because it's the night-before-grocery-shopping) he enjoys more than my elaborate "weird and fancy" meals as he calls them.  So when I come across a very straight-forward, easy to modify and make meal, I give it a shot.  This recipe fit all of that, and I loved it too!  Maybe sometimes, the easiest way is to go simpler.  Hmmmmm......

Creamy Italian Chicken

Serves 4

2 pounds chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pint mushrooms, sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rice
Parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Place chicken in crockpot.
  2. Heat butter in a skillet until hot; add mushrooms, onions, and garlic cooking until done.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, except cheese, and heat through.
  4. Pour mushroom mixture (carefully since it will be hot) into the crockpot over chicken.
  5. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  6. Check rice about 1 hour before service--you might need to turn the crockpot to high for 1 hour to finish cooking the rice.
  7. Serve with cheese.
Do you have any simple and easy to make recipes that are standards in your house?  I'd love to hear about them!
